The ROK straps I have are 2 piece loops on each end.. Might be like the bottom one in Enduro's pic.

I will start as soon as my shift is filled. I will have weekends off by spring. And I will have a real job. And a real check. Ad maybe a real bike. All my hard work is finally coming together.

I am a leaf in the wind.......

OK Gettin caught up.

Regarding the riding gear, you guys confirm my suspicions. For short hot weather commuting mesh is the ticket.

For a longer trip that will dry you out, something with more control of the airflow.

There's no best choice for all conditions, only better choices for different scenarios. It won't cost me any extra in the long run to invest in multiple types of gear. But since I don't have a lot of disposable income, I'll have to be strategic in the sequence in which I buy.


As for meeting for Lunch this weekend, Sunday is my only choice, due to work.

You carry way to much unnecessary gear. You need all those straps.

Thanks for asking. I've been good.

A little bummed I had to wait so long for parts to get the bike running , but since the weather has been kinda crappy, the Holidays, and working through the weekends at the Fly Shop, I wouldn't of had to much time to ride anyways.

Have you and Ellen targeted any destinations for this year?

Hey Dennis, you are not alone. I can't recall when I saw you at the race track, was it before 7/6? I was out of work last spring/summer until 7/6. Worked some side jobs for cash to kill time and get some gas money. Started new job in July and this week marks 6mos. This is the best job I've had since 2007. And that old job was only better cause more money & benny's. The work was boring and way too many office politics.

I just searched and found the right situation for a job suited to my skills. It takes some luck some patience & lots of confidence. Good luck with new slot.
